Andrews Sykes donates to army veteran charity

To start the year off on a positive note, we have continued to nurture our ongoing relationship with the Aaron Lewis Foundation. In late 2022, we pledged to make a Christmas donation of £5,000 and are very proud to support this wonderful initiative.

The Aaron Lewis foundation was set up in 2010 in memory of Aaron Lewis, who was tragically killed at the age of 26 while on an operation in Afghanistan. The charity initially began as a small forum for friends and family raise funds in Aaron’s memory. With unity and teamwork at its core, the charity grew rapidly into the principle funding source for the Commando Gunner Memorial in Plymouth. With funds still being donated after the memorial was completed, it became viable to create an all-volunteer charity which attained charitable status in 2013.

How can I prevent mould growth in my building?

The dangers of mould have prominently featured in the news in recent days, and this is a topic that everyone should be more aware of. The thought of being a victim to chronic exposure to black mould should be a concerning one. As energy bills soar and the need to cut back takes hold, businesses could be at greater risk of dampness increasing.

Ineffective moisture control has worrying implications for all of us, including those who work for you, so it’s important to ensure that humidity levels are kept within a range of 40-60%. Failure to do so increases the likelihood of people developing respiratory illnesses, skin dryness and eye irritation, but can also have an impact on your building’s structure and its contents.
